    yesterday I check the Hard Drive Maxtor but I made a mistake this isn't the way, I have 3 options: 1. Run Suse with the Cd install (long time 5 to 10 minutes), 2. Create a Boot disk for Suse and 3: Modified the boot.ini of windows XP. Somebody know how development the last 2 options?
    please Help me

    Similar Problem

    I myself had a very similar problem. The instructions on SuSE's support database that sergio_sg mentioned (http://portal.suse.com/sdb/en/2004/0...booting91.html) seemed to solve my problem, and now both windows and linux will boot.

    I went back a few weeks later, wanting to resize the partitions on the drive to make room for a FAT32 partition for my documents and music--one that both Linux and Windows can access. I have tried many different repartitioning tools including BootMagic 8.0, Paragon Partition Manager 6, and Partition Table Doctor. All of them report errors with the MBR--BootMagic will not even open, and Paragon reports that the three partitions are "invalid."

    I used the PartitionInfo tool included in Partition Magic. When I open it it displays three error messages in succession:

    1. Disk Error(s) were detected on the drive. See the 'Errors:' list for more details.
    2. Disk Geometry Error(s) were detected on this drive.
    3. Partition Error(s) were detected on this drive.

    This is the information that the program gives about the hard drive and the error messages:
    ====================================

    ucEndCylinder (9729) must be less than 9729.
    Info: Partition didn't end on cylinder boundary.

    I sense that our problems are related, but I have no idea how to fix either of them. Any ideas?
